Haiti Disaster Reveals Social Media as Double-edged Sword

As celebrity-packed telethons were launched and Ad Council spots ran 24/7 in support of relief efforts, big brands such as Coca-Cola, Kraft, Wal-Mart and McDonald’s, among many others launched fundraising campaigns via traditional marketing as well as with microsites, Twitter and Facebook.

on how much a 30-second ad in the next Super Bowl will cost. TV advertising isn’t dead — although content may be time-shifted via DVR, internet video, and mobile downloads, some programs just aren’t any good when they’re not fresh.

But some content – like sports and news – are highly perishable and more like sushi; it’s not very appealing after it’s been out for a while .

We do not apply our thinking because it is easier to follow someone else's decision. For thinking takes effort. Logical thinking, evaluating the pros and cons when making a decision, is both a complicated and lengthy effort. It implies that we have to separate the ...
